Keyano Theatre will participate in national ‘Light Up Live’ festivities.

It joins performance venues across Canada for the Day of Visibility for the Live Event Community for “Light Up Live”.

The Sept. 22 event seeks to raise awareness for events and the live entertainment industry shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Participants will light their facilities in red in solidarity with more than 2000 university and college-educated professionals impacted and out of work.

Keyano Interim President and CEO Dale Mountrain said the Theatre is happy to participate in the event.

“From the Belfry Theatre in Victoria, BC to the Savoy Theatre in Glace Bay, NS, even the CN Tower will light up. Keyano Theatre is an integral part of the arts community in Fort McMurray and I think we’re all excited for the day we can fill the seats again and enjoy some outstanding performances.” 

One hour after sundown on Sept. 22, the Keyano Theatre front lobby will be lit in red for Light Up Live.

Keyano Theatre is the largest arts venue in northern Alberta, and second-most northern in the province.

Participants also include MacEwan University, University of Calgary, the Citadel Theatre, and Winspear Centre.

More information about Light Up Live is available on their website.
